Stockpile Holiday Gift Guide

Deck the halls, light the menorah and bring out the tree… The holidays are here! We know how important it is to find the perfect gift for everyone on your list this year. To help you navigate gifting SZN, we have the Stockpile Holiday Gift Guide!

If you were thinking about gifting your mom a massage or grabbing a Starbucks gift card for White Elephant, we have some suggestions for a gift that keeps on giving. In fact, it doesn’t just keep on giving, it has the potential to keep on growing. Stock is our #1 gift for 2017, and here is why:

It Makes Your Gift Personal

Whether it is Apple, Google, or Stitch Fix, everyone has a favorite company. If your son or daughter is an Apple fan, they can own a piece of Apple stock. The gift of stock is the perfect opportunity to start teaching kids about the value of investing and the magic of compounding (putting your money to work for you).

But you know your kids won’t just want stock for Christmas, right? Give the stock along with the stuff! Give them a Barbie doll and Mattel stock, or a basketball with Nike stock.
